And when Iggy and Brand did play together (until December I believe) they had no chemistry.
I'm telling u that a 75% Garnett & 70% Sheed are just not going to cut offesivly or defensivly...

& u could say Jose, AB & Bosh had no Chemistry last year either but we all believe or hope it will come together.
So why couldn't a Brand & Iggy combo eventually work? Both are not ball hogs & both are great defenders & both are still pretty young.

Umm, I'd argue that they have shown they have chemistry together in the past. It was actually evident on a lot of occasions.

Whenever I watched the Sixers it was never there. Kind of when we had JO on the line up. Once Brand was removed, that team played more cohesively.

And a KG and 75% is still an offensive and defensive force and a Sheed at 70% is still a force. These guys are/were that good. I know people want to peg Boston down a notch, but they're a damn good team. Maybe we're just homers here.

At this point in their careers KG and Sheed don't even need to be 100% to make everyone around them better, especially with such an intelligent team around them. Both are incredibly smart players, maybe two of the highest IQs among big men in the league.
